Firefighters have been called to help rescue an injured pigeon from a tree in Hethersett.

The RSPCA contacted Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service to request assistance after the injured bird was discovered trapped in a tree at Glengarry Road, Hethersett, just before 9.10am today.

A spokesman said an officer went and made an assessment and it was decided an aerial ladder platform was needed.

He added the ALP came over from Great Yarmouth at road speed and under instruction to remain available for any other priority incidents the whole time.
